We removed the new CSX sticker units as photos are popping up showing them gone as of Oct. 2nd 2019.
No reason to why; but it was very short lived.
Hopefully someday CSX will paint real heritage units.

For those with Android devices with premium membership.
If your Android device receives the new Android OS (v9 - "Pie") the HeritageUnits app background notification service will be "paused" by the operating system as Android is attempting to prolong device batteries.
I'll be working on an update to the Android app to address this to have it operational again. I give you the ability to set "how frequent" to check the server and thus you have control over how much processing time your device uses. Although reality our app uses "minimal" cpu clock time so battery usage is usually not an issue.

I was hoping to run the new SMS vendor for a month but it came apparent within a few days that the cost was going to become an issue. Note that less than 1% of users actually use this feature.
Thus, to receive SMS notifications directly from the server it will require a premium membership to cover the cost of this service. If you previously had SMS notifications setup I've granted you temporary premium membership until 5/31/2019.
